The shift to ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) priorities at the European level (through the EU Green Deal) and at the global level (through the UN’s sustainability strategy) is a reality that directly affects the financial services industry through the promotion of sustainable or green finance.
As a result, having sound knowledge on environmental, social and governance factors is becoming key in successful business and investment management. Today, fund managers are constantly monitored by investors and need to respond to a widening range of client ESG concerns. These concerns are driven by rising awareness of the dangers of climate change, natural resource depletion and economic sustainability that are all reflected in a rapidly evolving regulatory framework (at least for EU countries).
Human and social issues include better education, improved living standards and other issues broadly grouped under social responsibility or inequality. Industry wide ESG metrics, benchmarks and ratings as well as regulatory considerations have become part of the investment decision-making process.
The aim of the certificate is to develop understanding in what is meant by sustainable finance, products and services, and to help people play a leading role in developing a sustainable banking and financial services industry in line with ESG regulations.
By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
Introducing ESG – Towards a Green and Sustainable Economy
Green Finance and Risk Management
Green Bonds and Asset-Backed Securities, Equity Markets and Investment Funds, and Insurance
ESG Analysis, Valuation, Integrated Portfolio Construction and Management
Who Should Attend
The course is designed to deliver knowledge, by offering an overview of ESG and Sustainable Finance and of the related regulatory requirements. In addition, it offers a more practical perspective that seeks to illustrate the challenges and prospects of sustainable and green finance.
The teaching methodology will be interactive, seeking to engage the participants and accordingly place emphasis on those aspects/issues discussed that are deemed to have the greatest value for the participants. A short quiz will be offered at the end of the seminar.
At the completion of the knowledge areas, participants will be assessed via the form of Multiple-Choice Questions which will consist of questions related to the material taught. The aim of the assessment is to examine participants’ overall attention and knowledge of material taught as well as their competencies towards the implementation of practical cases.
